Arlington: Saturday conditions

Email

About 85 degrees, clear. Light, variable winds.
The turf should be quite firm. Baking conditions, and little rain here at Arlington the last couple weeks. Two courses set up for the afternoon, but the inner to be used for only one race. All three graded turf stakes come on the outer course. Keep an eye out to see if the surface carries speed.
Rail-drawn pressing/stalking Class Break just won race 2. Last-to-first outside-closer Mano Point capture race 1. The Poly is slow, but it sure appears to be playing fair.
